White Oak Flooring at Floor Coverings International in Olathe, KS
Hardwood flooring continues to be one of the most popular types of flooring. When it comes to choosing the type of hardwood that works best for your home, you must consider white oak flooring. Warm and elegant, oak is currently the most popular type of hardwood and accounts for over 50% of all available hardwood today.
Some Facts About White Oak Flooring
White oak is a relatively hard hardwood, with a Janka hardness rating putting it ahead of red oak. Its strength and versatility are why it’s the wood of choice for most barrels used for storing whiskey and other liquors. It’s great for shipbuilding as well because it resists wood rot and mildew better than red oak.
The grain pattern is far more subtle in white oak when compared to red oak, and its coloring has an undertone that ranges from beige to charcoal-gray, making it extremely versatile and suitable for most types of homes.
Style and Finish Options
When you consult with Floor Coverings International on your new white oak flooring, we’ll help you navigate the various options that are available to ensure that you have the floors that are perfectly suited for your home.
- Types — We sell both solid and engineered white oak flooring. There are other options as well such as laminate and luxury vinyl planks that are designed to mimic the look of white oak, but at a fraction of the cost.
- Plank Width — We’ll walk you through the different plank sizes from standard strip width to wider, more rustic widths, even as wide as 12 inches.
- Stain & Finish — Because white oak accepts stain very easily, you can have it stained and finished to your liking. We can apply a clear varnish that reveals the natural coloration or stain it to create a darker hue. The choice is yours.
